👀REACTIONS TO LES MIS👀.
Comments from the reactions of a group of readers in Halifax N.S. circa 1984
~Les Mis is a book I’ll never forget. I found the book heart-warming and, to say the least, I enjoyed reading it.
~Jean Valjean always manages to bring out the good in himself. When he brings it out in himself it’s almost like a lesson or it makes us want to do it along with him.
~What I got out of the novel seemed to be respect for others.
~I enjoyed reading the novel very much. It was meaningful in that I felt the characters’ pains, their joys, their anguish, and their hopes.
~The novel made me think about my own life and how I could improve my attitudes.
~Jean Valjean, or at least part of him, dwells within all of us.
It was fast-paced, intense, and unpredictable. I enjoyed it because it was like no other novel I’ve read.
~I loved it, especially the parts about Marius and Cosette.
~The novel was worth reading because it included moral lessons of truth and justice.
~Out of all the novels I’ve ever read, this would be the one that created the most emotional response within me and filled me with a warm feeling and knowledge of a good set of morals which to live my life by.
~I think that you can find similarities between each character and yourself. The book also evoked an incredible emotional response.
~I can't find words to emphasize how good I feel about reading this book.
~Jean brought himself and others joy and happiness and that is a goal we should all have and that is the reason to live.
~I found the novel to be both emotional and enlightening.
~I think that my favorite character was Gavroche because he was so gutsy and full of spunk.
~If I had the choice to read any book I wanted to, to read for a second time, I would not choose this book.
~If I had the chance to read Les Miserables again, I definitely would. This book is filled with everything: suspense, romance, and adventure.
~I was surprised to make it through the novel, although when I was finished I was very proud of myself, to finish it.

That was more of a man,
